Taster’s Review:

I had really high hopes for this chocolate flavored rooibos, unfortunately the rooibos in this kind of let me down.  Just a little.  That’s not to say it’s not a tasty tisane, it is.  But, I was hoping for MORE chocolate and less rooibos flavor, and this just didn’t deliver that.

But then, that’s the chocoholic in me.  I see the word chocolate, and I get happy.  I see the words BELGIAN chocolate and I get very happy.  And while this is very rich and deliciously chocolate-y … it’s just not quite as chocolate-y as I would like it to be.

However, as I continue to sip, this tisane starts to redeem itself.  I notice the chocolate-y notes – deep, dark chocolate! – becoming stronger while I notice less of the woody tones of the rooibos.

So, chocoholics, don’t despair!  Don’t give up on this tisane after the first sip or two!  Allow it time to cool slightly, and allow the flavors to develop.  It’s definitely worth it.  It might be a tad bit disappointing at the start, but, after a few sips, it becomes very decadent and chocolate-y!

Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!

Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
